Two Jacks Denim, named after Jack Kerouac and Jack London (which is awesome), opened at 2355 Broadway in Oakland in March. The menswear shop owners promise that all of their clothing is handmade in the United States: You'll find brands like Taylor Stitch and Prison Blues, "a sturdy line of original pants, jackets, and work shirts manufactured by inmates from the Eastern Oregon Correctional Institution in Pendleton, Oregon," according to Diablo.
